The Grand Rapids Drive have traded for the returning player rights to former Michigan Wolverines forward Jon Horford in a deal with the Canton Charge. Horford will join the team next week.

The NBA G League affiliates of the Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers agreed that the returning rights to Ramon Harris would be sent form the Drive to the Charge in exchange for Horford rights.

Horford, who will wear the #22 jersey in Beer City, is the 6-foot-10, 245-pound forward known locally for his four year stint at the University of Michigan.

Horford, the younger brother of NBA player Al Horford of the Boston Celtics, also played at Florida during 2014-15, his graduate school year of eligibility. Horford averaged 3.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game over 138 in his career.

Horford signed briefly with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2015 but was waived.

He was acquired by the Canton Charged and debuted with 10 points and 9 rebounds in a 113–111 loss against the Drive. Horford has appeared in 38 G League games, 18 of which he started, averaging 4.0 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

After ending their eight-game losing streak with a 90-80 win over the Lakeland Magic on Thursday night, the Drive hit the road for a contest with the Erie BayHawks.

The Drive return home on December 4 when they host the Wisconsin Herd.
